Thanks for passing it on. Now we have more information. I will register for the main round of ticket sales.
In my world there's only legible and more legible.

So, when you put in for the main sale, I take it you have to be prepared to pay $390 - there is no way to request only a $240 ticket?

It's actually not as bad as I anticipated. Now...If I can decide, scrape up a big pile-o-loot, conquer my fears etc...I'll be there.

@essjay, you will be able to select which of the pricing tiers you would be willing to purchase. If $240's your limit, just check that. On the flip side, if you've got the means and would rather go for the highest tier (greater odds of success, plus you're making it easier for those who have less to get to the burn), just check the upper tier. If you'll pay anything, check all three.

I still read it, as, if you put in for a higher tier, you might get drawn at a lower one.
They reference:
Those who are awarded tickets will receive notification on February 1 via email that their credit cards have been charged for their tickets and at which pricing tier.

to me, this implies you won't know what level you got, until chosen.

Plan for the worst and hope for the best. It's $150 between the lowest & highest prices; how much is that in the grand ledger of BRC expenditures? Particularly when one considers the main sale is in January, 6.5 months prior to the event.

I've been saving quarters for my ticket since September 6 of this year. Now that I know the deadline, that $40-60 is going to be handy.

See y'all in BRC!

@ygmir & @ratty - the FAQ should hopefully clear that up.

What they all said! hehehehe
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.
